Cherry Blossom Sunrise


The OHS Photo Club went to see the sunrise while the Cherry Blossoms were in peak bloom! The Cherry Blossoms were especially beautiful this year... I am wondering if the snow and extra chill had a hand in those lovely trees that grace the Tidal Basin.  

Happy Spring!!!


Emerging Visions: Complexities

Emerging Visions: Complexitiestop


March 21-April 5, 2014 
Emerging Visions annually offers Fairfax County high school students the opportunity to work directly with Greater Reston Arts Center's curatorial staff to create competent artworks that will be exhibited in our gallery. Participating students from Herndon, Oakton and South Lakes High Schools have committed themselves to the success of this project and have worked hard to achieve their artistic endeavors. Many of the artists have focused their energies on projects that reflect complex issues, such as forgiveness and love. Some have worked collaboratively to address larger issues of environmental stewardship, identity, and memory. The gallery will be immersed in evocative drawings and paintings, energetic mixed media works and beautiful photography.


            My students were just ecstatic to participate again in this exciting opportunity! It was challenging with all the snow Mother Nature had thrown at us… getting the work made and keeping the momentum going.

The end result was a very solid body of artwork! This is such an awesome opportunity for the students to gain real world experience with how galleries work and what is to keep deadlines!

   The reception was very well attended and offered the students the experiences of seeing an audience interact with their work. They could also engage in conversation about their process.
